My heart breaks for James---so begin the explosive, true, private diaries of Miss Jane Moneypenny, personal secretary to Secret Service chief M and colleague and confidante of James Bond. Bound by the Offcial Secrets Act not to reveal anything about her work, Miss Moneypenny is forced to lead a secretive, clandestine life. But, contrary to popular belief, she was not simply a bystander while James Bond saw all the action.Miss Moneypenny’s experience with mystery stretches all the way back to her childhood in Africa, when her father inexplicably disappeared in action during World War II. Now, as a young woman in 1960s London, Miss Moneypenny unknowingly stumbles upon her father’s trail. In a position like hers, there’s no file she can’t access, and no document she can’t read. Yet Miss Moneypenny is forced to decide whether it’s worth risking everything---her job, her safety, and even international security---for the possibility of finding her father alive.A life of espionage has personal as well as political ramifications. For Jane Moneypenny, the price is high. Romantic relationships with outsiders are necessarily built on lies, and she automatically questions the motives of every man she grows close to. For as her diary quickly reveals, Miss Moneypenny is involved in far more than office politics.Guarding so many secrets and with no one to confide in, she finds herself breaking the first rule of espionage. Unbeknownst to anyone, she keeps a diary charting her innermost thoughts and state secrets. These diaries should not have been written. They were never supposed to be read. . . .Praise for The Moneypenny Diaries:“Beats pretend-Flemings hands down.” –Literary Review (UK)“Brilliant…Bridget Jones’ Diary crossed with Spooks, but set in the 60s.” –The Mirror (UK)“There is more to Moneypenny than meets the GoldenEye, as she embarks on her very own secret mission…Read her riveting account in this explosive, page-turning diary.” –OK Magazine (UK)“Thrilling” --Joanna Lumley“A thoroughly enjoyable romp” --The Guardian (UK)“A damned good read” --Roger Moore“A compelling tour de force” --Jeffrey Deaver
